kr16 Best chew toy I have every gotten is a lacrosse ball. Indestructible so far for two months with two of them going at it nightly.

Baillif I found that the whole ones last way way longer than the ones that have been halved. I've got one that sees regular gnawing use from Zebu and is still going after months.

Word of caution though. Make sure your dog is trying to grind it down and not chomping to break it because if he's doing the second one he might crack or break teeth.

ApselBear $20 is definitely expensive for a treat that will probably last one hour to an afternoon. But they do love to destroy them.

ayoitzrimz My dog loves them but will vomit every single morning after gnawing on them the night before he would vomit some bile. Taking the antlers away is all we needed to do in order to stop the vomiting.

Bear L My dogs love them. Pet store antlers are sold at premium price. You can search online for much cheaper. One of the places I buy from is Naturally Shed Elk, Moose, Whitetail, and Mule Deer Antlers - Yellowstone Antlers

My dogs prefer the split ones, less work on their teeth and they can be a bit lazy that way.

Freddy Not good for a dog that likes to destroy every toy, treat you give them. I took them away when it sounded like molars were going to start breaking.

They did love them though.

Pax8 My dog loves them. When my family goes hunting, they'll actually save the racks and my dog will gnaw on chunks that are sawed off the rack.

Just be conscious of what kind of chewer your dog is. If he is a gnawer, like mine then he should be fine, but if he tries to split the antlers he may break or chip a tooth.

If you do decide to get him one or two, you can find them much cheaper on places like Etsy from people that either hunt or pick up the sheds and sell them much cheaper than a pet store.

Antlers?

Do dogs like them? I saw them at a pet store. For one of the small ones it like$20 just for a 4-6 inch! I don't want to go out and buy one if he won't eat them. I know every dog is different, and have different tastes. But what to see if any one has had luck with them or if their dog sticks up their nose at it.
